Morphokinetics In Practice

Morphokinetics In Practice course

Significance of the morphokinetic patterns for osteopathy

Studies about human ontogenesis have demonstrated that the morphokinetic patterns mean a fundamental basis for form and function.

The specific properties of the morphokinetic patterns are a palpatory starting-base for the osteopathic diagnose, the differential diagnose, and also for the therapeutic aspect.

Construction of the course:

The embryologic germ layers are brought in relation with specific morphokinetic patterns. The patterns are resumed in an anatomo-physiologic paradigm that is related to the germ layer and consists of the following germinal derivates: ; Homunculus neurocranii (ecto), Homunculus viscerale (endo) and Homunculus interni (meso).

Under the capital title “Morphokinetic patterns, about diagnose and therapy” the following courses are organised in relation to the germinal derivates:

Basic principles for diagnosis and treatment

The cranio-vertebro-sacral system (Homunculus neurocranii)

The visceral system (Homunculus viscerocranii)

The locomotor, cardiovascular and urogenital system (Homunculus interni)
